It’s crucial to improve bicycle and pedestrian safety in San Francisco as more and more individuals are choosing to bike and walk. Improving bicycle and pedestrian safety has multiple benefits for our residents, visitors and business community.
- Vision Zero Funding – During our City’s budget process, I secured close to $200,00 in additional funding to fund pedestrian safety initiatives and street improvements across District 2 to advance the policy of Vision Zero.
- SF StreetSmarts - I secured funding for the SFStreetSmarts program in District 2, which alerts drivers, bicyclists, and pedestrians on how to share our city streets in the safest way possible – while also teaching best practices and how to be mindful of all those using our streets. You can learn more about the program here: http://www.sfbos.org/Modules/ShowDocument.aspx?documentid=49797.
- Bicycling and Walking Trail Improvements - My office led the efforts to improve access and safety for pedestrians and bicyclist on the Marina Bay Trail, which is used by thousands every year, and led the efforts to finalize the Presidio Trail improvements inside the Arguello gate.
